CRIM 510: Policing

CRIM 510-DL1: Policing
(Spring 2024)

04:30 PM to 07:10 PM R


Section Information for Spring 2024

This graduate-level class is designed to deepen the student's understanding of policing, and more specifically, what we know from research and science about policing, or “evidence-based policing.” Evidence-based policing involves the supply, development, translation, and practical application of research knowledge and analysis to everyday policing actions, activities, tasks, and technologies. In this course, you will learn about the nature of policing, the evidence base for policing activities, and how existing knowledge from research is translated and institutionalized (or not) into policing practices and reforms. Some classes will also include a short live exchange with a policing leader who practices evidence-based policing related to the topic of the day.

CRIM 510 DL1 is an online live video section.
